You must notify us in writing within 1 day of the first round offers* to cancel and receive a refund on your booking deposit. An administration fee will be deducted from the booking deposit.

Who is responsible for paying the electricity/Water?
Management pay the bills on behalf of the residents; however, copies of bills will be sent to the apartments for information purposes. The costs will be deducted from the electricity/water deposit pre-payment paid by the resident prior to moving in (further detailed in the application form). At the end of the year, any refunds due to residents from the electricity pre-payment will be refunded with the deposit refund. Where bills exceed the pre-payment, this amount will be deducted from the damage deposit or will be billed separately.
Can I move rooms/ apartments during the academic year?
No, once you have accepted your room allocation, you will sign a formal lease agreement and no further changes can be made.
